UK Financial Guru Sues Facebook over Fraud Crypto Ads

UK television personality, Martin Lewis is suing Facebook for defamation, stating the social media giant has failed to stop fake adverts that use his face and name. Some of these fake ads have been pushing cryptocurrency scams. The man who founded the UK’s biggest consumer website, and has his own show on British national television, ITV’s The Martin Lewis Money Show, is pursuing Facebook in a personal lawsuit, issuing high court proceedings.

He claims that in the last year alone, Facebook has published over 50 fake adverts using his face and name, with some ads linking to websites that look like reputable news publishers such as the BBC.
